This year the annual Australia Day outing was moved to Parramatta, with the hardy souls meeting at an eye watering 5AM at Parramatta park to watch the balloons go up. Literally. Unfortunately the Fun Police were in attendance and photographers and the public were moved well away from anywhere near the action. Some early starters were able to get some shots, but is was a little difficult to get close. Afterwards there was a well deserved lull for refreshment and then a wander around the classic car displays, antique Fire engines and the children's play area before wandering off on our own to relax or look for more photographic opportunities. Many thanks to Deb Mooney for doing the homework and planning.
